that susan rice, america's ambassador to the u.n., provide more answers what happened in benghazi. new hampshire senator, kelly ayotte one of those four senators who sent a scathing letter to ambassador susan rice, she will be here to tell us first-hand what that is all about. bill: meantime the violence in syria getting worse by the day. a pair of massive explosions rocking the capital city of damascus. just watch here. that looks like surveillance video there. state television saying that rebel fighters attacked a militariry compound. one of a series of increasingly bold attacks in their efforts to out of president assad. the car bombs shown here shattering windows. they could be heard from miles around. a three-hour gunfight followed. four syrian guards and an iranian tv reporter reportedly killed as a result of that. martha: all right. let's take it back here at home for a minute and talk a little bit about the economy because we've got a lot of new numbers that have come in that are giving us a better read on the health of the u.s. economy. u.s. weekly jobless claims fell by 26,00
at the state department, that the u.s. ambassador susan rice made on five sunday talk shows here in the united states. they're making this a big issue. does it have political legs as they say? >> well, first of all, i wouldn't be surprised the romney administration -- i mean the romney team make hay out of anything. look, they're looking for an issue. and they're the last people that we should hear from on foreign policy given all of the missteps that mitt romney has made. but look, wolf, beyond the political nature of this whole inquiry, we need to look at the fact that al qaeda leaders posted a video a day before the attack on september 10th which mr. alvarez wa ri wanted to avenge the death of one of his deputies in libya. he called upon libyans to, you know, try to provoke unrest. so look i think one of the things we should do right now is to let congress -- members of congress investigate this. they will investigate this. senator kerry along with senator has sent a letter to the administration answering very important questions that i think the american people will want to know. on the sh
to the united nations susan rice, to resign because of the comments she made on those five sunday talk shows? >> yes, wolf. i believe that this was such a failure of foreign policy message and leadership, such a misstatement of facts at the time and for her to go on all of those shows and in effect the spokesman for the world and be misinforming the american people and our allies and countries around the world, to me somebody has to pay the price for this. we have too much things go wrong and everyone forgets about it the next day. i think we have to send a clear message. on such an issue where an american ambassador was killed where by all the evidence at the time the presumption had to be it was terrorism. i can see why if they wanted to say - it was intentionally or unintly and to show the significance of that, i believe she should gn, yes. >> because there is statemt that the pokesperson, the director of public affairs for the offif director of national intelligence put out today they et w obviously arist -- a action, delibete and organized terrorist assault carried out by extres affili
saying the administration's response was inept and ignorant and susan rice blaming it on a spontaneous protest was inexcusable. >> it's either willful ignorance or abysmal ignorance to think people come to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and heavy weapons pant attack goes on for hours. bill: both sides are complaining. governor romney's team says the white house is still getting its story mixed up. >> reporter: democrats say republicans are politicizing the tragic attack that cost of life of four americans. the republicans say the white house is cover ugging up the details for political reasons. here is axlerod. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. but when you are the responsible party, when you are the administration and you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believed. >> reporter: actually it was several days after the benghazi attack before the white house called it terrorism and that came after the national terrorism chief called it aterror attack. >> i think now based on the recommendations o
. then the explanations began to shift a little bit. susan rice the u.n. ambassador said it started as a demonstration about that video, and then involved other elements, who joined spontaneously. it's been shifting ever since. the president initially called it an act of terror. he has not done so since then but his spokesman has said since then that it is obviously self-evidently an act of terror, and now this statement from the spokesman for the director of national intelligence, who says in part, we do assess that some of those involved were linked to groups affiliated with, or sympathetic to, al qaeda. >> can i ask you, susan rice, she's under fire from peter king. of course he's a republican congressman. he's been calling for her resignation, saying she hasn't been forthcoming with the truth. so what does the white house say about that? >> they did put out a spokesman in defense of ambassador -- statement in defense of ambassador susan rice yesterday. it stems from a couple of sundays ago. she was on some of the sunday shows, including "meet the press" where she gave that explanation that this pr
in banghazi. the question is why did they send susan rice out? why i was it necessary for her to go out on five shows and say it was spontaneous. why not saying we have an ongoing investigation. i'm not going to say more. we're going to learn more. >> secretary clinton believes that ambassador rice has done a superb job. let's just start that. we completely reject calls here in this building. >> at a time when most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country, instead we've had this bizarre response, which only leads to me believe there was, number one, there was gross negligence involved, or the president doesn't want us to realize libya may be a failed state in the fbi agents can't even make into banghazi. >> i watched the presentation. i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritatively and be that wrong. >> did you know the chairman of the homeland security committee has asked for susan rice to resign? does the president have 100% confidence in susa
? was it's a lie? >> i think that susan rice needs to step down. one of two things occurred. either she saw the intelligence and decided she was going to nuance or tweak and say what she said, calling it's a response to the video, or she was told by those above her to go out and say this was a response to the video. >> eithe either ambassador rices deliberately misleading the american people or showed such a lack of knowledge or sophistication she shouldn't told that position anymore. >> today we see things differently. i mean, we see the thing unravel in banghazi. the question is why did they send susan rice out? why i was it necessary for her to go out on five shows and say it was spontaneous. why not saying we have an ongoing investigation. i'm not going to say more. we're going to learn more. >> secretary clinton believes that ambassador rice has done a superb job. let's just start that. we completely reject calls here in this building. >> at a time when most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country, instead we've had this bizar
.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. this is all over the way the white house responded to the deatdeaths of those four americs killed at our u.s. consulate in libya. fresh fallout tonight. congressman peter king, republican from new york, heads the powerful house homeland security committee, saying rice must step down because the account she gave in the days and hours following the attack was plain wrong. here he is earlier today on fox. >> either ambassador was deliberately misleading the american people or she showed and demonstrated such a lack of mr. king says several people with the administration. so did the intelligence change, then, days after the attack, or what? >> well, as you said, fox news has sources that say intelligence officials knew within a day, one day, that it was a terror attack. a spokesman for the director of national intelligence, though, says the information about the attack did evolve over time, but didn't say how long it took. ambassador rice spoke five days after the attack, and congressman king says at >> growing concerns over possible vote
the country, sending the susan rice on the sunday shows pretending that this was the outgrowth of a demonstration, when everybody over the age of nine could see that it was premeditated. that is why the story was suppressed until it could no longer be suppressed. >> i am not aware of the conspiracy, but charles has his own strange and wonderful sources -- >> how do you explain her -- >> i am going to try to answer my moderator's question about this. the problem the republicans have is that mitt romney has never cracked the threshold of being a possible commander in chief. i think it does tarnish the obama record. i think there's no question that the murder of osama bin laden took the wind out of the sales of the republican candidates. three of them decided in the wake of that not to run for 2012 because they thought he was unbeatable. it was an enormous credential for obama. but because romney chose paul ryan, he did not fill up the emptiness of his resume on foreign policy. for that reason he has not been able to exploit what should be an advantage. >> can you explain why susa
. it was obvious it was a terrorist attack before susan rice came on this show and others saying oh, no, it was a spontaneous attack about a video. it turns out al-qaeda is capable or al-qaeda affiliates are capable of launching terrorist aattackeds on american embassies and in this case quite a sophisticated one. and attacks on the day after in sudan and tunisia and yemen. we have a war going on and the president doesn't want to discuss that so they tried to pretent this was a spontaneous reaction to a video. >> chris: the timeline set out was that we have this early information and then got information that changed. before susan rice did her famous round of five interviews including "fox news sunday" that first sunday after the attack there was a lot of information or at least allegations including the president of libya and i specifically asked her about that who said this was a preplanned terrorist attack and yet they were insisting. she was insisting no, it was spontaneous. >> it was amazing. i think i was on the panel that week and we were all surprised she didn't leave a little m
lawmaker to call for u.n. ambassador susan rice's resignation. he objects to her going on the sunday talk shows two weeks ago and stating that the libya attack appeared to be a spontaneous reaction to an anti-muslim video when there was already evidence that it may have been a terror attack. >> either ambassador rice was deliberately misleading the american people or showed such a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold the position anymore. the entire administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world. virtually everything she said was wrong. >> others are praising ambassador rice, a spokesman for president obama saying she's done extraordinary work at the united nations, and the state department says she provided the information there was at the time. another statement, i'm particularly troubled for calls for ambassador rice's resignation. she's a remarkable public servant for whom the liberation of the libya people has been a personal issue and public mission. she's an enormously capa
it gets susan rice off the hook. peter king is calling for her to resign. does that get her off the hook for coming out five days after this happened on five different sunday shows and saying this was spontaneous protest related to this film. i don't think so. we all know what james clapper's office said. we know that they have been evolving on this. but it took five days. >> not only that what she said was unequivocal. why not just say the safest thing that all administration say when they don't want to release information which is the investigation is continuing. we don't have all the information. >> why jump to the conclusion that this is about a film and each at the president's u.n. speech this week he highlighted this film through throughout this u.n. speech leading many to believe that the main issue is this youtube clip that seems relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of siblings charles krauthammer also had a similar take on this and he responded to that james clapper statement last night. take a listen. >> well, you read the dni -- dnr statement it's a cover your rump sta
for a campaign event. on september 126th, u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice called the assassination a spontaneous attack. but the same day a top libyan official said the assassination was preplanned. on september 19th, matthew olsen, director of the president's counter terrorism unit confirmed that the assassination was indeed a terror attack why did it take 8 days to confirm that pat caddell is angry about it. >> if a president of either party, i don't care whether it was jimmy carter or bill clinton or george bush or ronald reagan or george h.w. bush had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane after saying something and flown off to a fund raisener las vegas, they would have been crucified. it would have been, it should have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will be said. >> with us now is mr. caddell. so you think this is an organized press suppression of this story? >> well, organized -- whether it's organized is a straight conspiracy, everyone is in on

believe that susan rice was a good foot soldier for the administration, but to even look at the fort hood attack, we said that was work place violence and found out that was connected to al-qaeda and even at times where bomber, we said an isolated incident and found out that was planned and connected to al-qaeda. so, this is actually something that has happened before time and time again and definitely. >> kelly: and both of you-- time out ladies, let me put this question out to both of you. since mr. romney is expected to attack the president on economy, and foreign policy and so far we have not seen what he will do for a second term. so, what do you anticipate the president will have to do, jehmu, in order to get ahead of this foreign policy gap that's going on right now in the wake of the death of four great americans. i don't know, kelly, i disagree with you. we haven't seen from president obama what his next four years would be, we have not seen anything from governor romney on what his business-- his presidency would look like, all he's done is attack the-- >> during the debate. >>

rice and others, not just susan rice, who were suggesting that the consulate was as well secured as it could have been. not only the security contractors on the ground to provide security for ambassador and the building itself, but many members of it that made it sound like a big team. it appears that is not case. we learned two other things to present additional problems. we heard about the telephone intercept between al-qaeda linked groups about the attac attack. we know the phone call took place after the attack and the administration had access it to quickly after the attack. so the question is if they knew that, if they had access to that administration to zo quickly after the attack why wasn't it shared with the american people? finally we have the commander, the top general in africa who oversees this, carter hamm, told reporters in july that the united states hasn't done enough to degrade the growing threat from al-qaeda and he was saying it in july. should have been raising alarm bells in washington at the time. >> bret: juan. you know, we here at fox report a lot of thi
